Lacy leaves on tomatoe plants

I have a couple of containers of tomato plants. Some of the leaves on the plants look like lace and something is eating the flowers on the plants. What is eating my plants and how do I get rid of it?

I'm sorry --- but without being able to examine your plant, I can't say what's eating it. Have you examined it closely for pests? One of the most common culprits is tomato hornworms [ ] -- but there are others to watch for.
